Madrid - A Spanish judge has launched a new investigation into the 2004 Madrid train bombings focusing on seven suspects whom he says helped suspected bombers to flee.

National Court Judge Eloy Velasco says there is evidence that the seven provided money, cover and information to help four men suspected of carrying out the March 11 2004 bombings to evade justice.

The morning rush hour attack on commuter trains headed for the capital's main southern station killed 191 people and injured about 1 800.

Velasco named the seven suspects in a statement as Zohair Khadiri, Djilali Boussiri, Taha Seghrouchni, Nassreddine Ben Laidne Amri, Hammad Lahsini, Abdelkrim Lebchina and Abdelaziz El Merabit.
